Cherry-Fudge Brownie Torte

This weeks recipe for Tuesdays with Dorie is Cherry-Fudge Brownie Torte, and it was chosen by April of Short + Rose. All I can say is -OH MY GOODNESS, this is really good. I believe that this has to be one of my top five recipes that we have made from this book. If you are undecided about making this please. please try it. The ingredients are a bit pricey but well worth splurging on.
The bottom layer is a chocolate brownie stuffed with dried cherries, cherry preserves and chocolate chunks. The top layer is a mousse made with cream cheese, mascarpone cheese, and whipped cream. Together they form a super yummy dessert.
I failed miserably when trying to create the fancy design on the top. I needed to let the moussse set longer before I tried to pipe on the cherry preserves. Next time I will just stick to a sprinkling of cocoa power. Thanks again April for choosing this wonderful recipe.

I think your torte looks great! I liked the brownie part, but not the cherries. Hubby liked both. :)
